SEHunter, if your loaded round case mouths measure .256" at their smallest, get a bushing with an inside diameter of .255" or .254". You typically need bushings about 1 to 3 thousandths smaller than a loaded round diameter. For 22 caliber cases, only 1 or 2 thousandths smaller is good enough as they don't have enough recoil to make harder neck grip on bullets a requirement.
It depends on the neck wall thickness as well as how hard or soft the brass is in case necks. Some folks get 2 or 3 bushings covering a range they'll want to experiment with.
Yes, get either the RCBS or Redding full bushing die. Sierra Bullets uses the Redding version, but both are top notch stuff.
